Good? It's just telling you that you didn't provide SSH credentials for the firewall and therefore it wasn't able to attempt to login, identify the OS, and attempt to run any local checks. That's not any sort of vulnerability or anything outside of the fact that it suggests you don't have your management access restricted like you should.
